The honouring of Beatrix Potter with a series of 50p coins and this Mrs
Tiggy-Winkle 50p is the fourth release. Potter based her eponymous
character on her much loved pet hedgehog – Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Kitty
MacDonald, a Scottish washerwoman. The conscientious hedgehog features on
this 50p in her washerwoman’s dress and petticoat. Designed by Emma Noble,
Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is instantly recognisable in the centre of the coin.
